Acer has used Intel's low-cost i3 processor to good effect in the Aspire 5741 to create a well specified, mid-sized laptop with a very attractive price tag. It's difficult not to like the Acer Aspire 5741 thanks to its combination of good looks, lasting battery life and impressive performance. Its lack of gaming muscle does let the side down a little, but in most other respects this is a fine budget laptop.

Considering it only costs £699, the Acer Aspire 5741 is a bargain. You get a quick CPU and a good supporting cast of components, and it will be fast enough for any task except high-end gaming.

Whether you appreciate its design is up for debate, but what we can all agree upon is the Acer Aspire AS5741-6073 delivers outstanding performance for the price and surprisingly long battery life. For those who want more features, however, the Editors' Choice Samsung R580 offers Blu-ray, Core i5, and switchable graphics for about $250 more.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
